killer but also a pedophile. the former prosecutor, criminal defense attorney and some real characters that we're all being introduced to in this trial. dan, you first. i'm wondering about the testimony from the so-called rifleman. how damaging is that do you think to the defense? >> in terms of the actual charges that whitey bulger is facing, it's not that damaging. murder charges are going to be proved. there's overwhelming evidence. however, this case is unusual. it seems like the defense is more focused on stopping the prosecution from proving things that ruin his reputation like he's a rat or kills women or he's a pedophile and in that sense, that means a lot to the defense. in terms of whether he'll be convicted of murder, it probably won't make a difference. rick: what do you think of that point, the defense strategy here? could this be some kind of a preventative strategy before this guy goes to prison? >> definitely. i think they've had the conversation and bulger has told his attorneys, look. i'm going down. i know i'm going to prison but i at least need to be protected. i ca

the secularists. now, the military as well as other state institutions has been on the defensive. this new alignment may not be any more stable or lasting. it is also important to say the current alliance with the secular opposition is anti- brotherhood. it is not anti-islamist. the party supported the removal of morsi and has exerted its influence in the new transition by vetoing the cabinet choices. my second point is that we should really reserve judgment. on the patht egypt towards democracy or not. on the positive side of the ledger, the military is not exerting control directly but has put civilians out front. they put in place a cabinet. addition to that, i would say another positive sign is that the new transition roadmap puts the rewriting of the constitution before the holding of new parliamentary and presidential elections and this a flaw in the first transition. the fact that they held this before the first time. they are dominating the process and is quitting others. on the negative side of the ledger, the way in which the democratic process was set aside on july 3 is troublin

? >> i think congressman king wants to be a shock jock. they are defensive and tone davdeaf on so many levels. regardless of what people think most agree children brought here by their parents through no fault of their own are young children who deserve a chance and it's proven in polls that most americans think like that. the spotlight is on republicans right now the immigration reform so this could not come at a worse time. >> a new poll nbc news/"wall street journal" poll just out and they asked what people think when they hear republicans say that immigration reform must wait until the border is secure. this was a specific question. 36% say border security is a legitimate concern. 60% say it's an excuse to block reform. what is the truth here? how secure are our borders? >> i think americans have been listening, because it's been reported and proven that the last few years deportations have gone up significantly and immigration is what they call net zero for mexico. virtually no immigration coming. americans are right in the sense at this point, we have been incredibly successful w

defense seems now inappropriate. if he can't govern himself, how can he be expected to govern a city? my apologies. on the keystone pipeline, susan brewington says besides it being the worst idea for our planet, we, the u.s.a., will be taking all of the risks and be left with all of the toxic waste. once the tar sands get to texas, it will be refined then shipped to other countries and game over for the planet. it looks like president obama's going in that direction.

of the defense appropriations bill. are you working on a similar proposal with democrats and republicans in the senate? >> i'm definitely working with democrats and republicans to overall this program dramatically. there's a number of discussions already. senators on both sides of the aisle and the discussions certainly have accelerated since that extraordinary house vote. we have already a quarter of the united states senator on record saying they are interested in pursuing, certainly, the issue that are central to the debate. that's the reason we insisted on finally getting answers. the answer to your question is yes, you'll see a strong and bipartisan effort in the senate to pick up on the work of the house and to fix a problem that i think intrude on the privacy and liberty of millions of law-abiding americans. >>> you watch all of of senator wyden's remarks. >> the first lady reflect the united states about what women are supposed to be today. are we suppose to be mom -- supposed to be first meat? to navigate that if the president is supposed to be head of state, and head of governm

member -- but i always say i am a big spender in two areas -- defense and infrastructure. that is what we are supposed to be doing here, if you read the constitution. i am upset with some of my conservative friends who make statements on the floor as we were trying to get this bill passed that we are really not right. in fact, the conservative position was to do a re- authorization as opposed to doing extensions tom extensions you could argue that take 30% off the top or 28%. we know it takes a lot of money out of the system. you cannot plan for it. you cannot put the reforms. we have more reforms in our bill a year ago than all other bills, i think, combined. you don't get that with extensions. so we will be faced with this thing. group, thenservative americans -- the american conservative union, correctly use the statement i used on the floor saying the conservative position is to come up with a good, healthy re-authorization bill and start doing what the constitution says we are supposed to be doing. i just know that we are going to do the best we can, and we are going to work as a tea
